Frequently Asked Questions

Benefits

There are thousands of electrical plugs installed in every building. They’re hard to manage because there’s no infrastructure for plugs and people are always adding new ones. At the same time, plugs also provide an untapped opportunity for improving convenience, efficiency, safety and comfort for people and their buildings.
Keewi helps you harness the untapped value of plugs to improve your buildings. We bring intelligence to your plugs by adding on/off controls and data collection capabilities. Using advanced analytics technologies, we make it easy for you to collect new information about your building and business.
Every day you wait to upgrade plugs in your building is another day you’re leaving easy money--as much as $5.50/sqft--on the table. The sooner you get in touch, the faster you can put plugs in your building to work to save you time and money.
With Keewi, you can be sure to see the following results:
  • 17X faster plug data collection with real-time access to inventory and usage data
  • 20-40% savings in the energy used by appliances up to $1/sqft in operating costs
  • 100% visibility into your building operations and performance
  • 20-30% space savings on your lease up to $4.50/sqft
  • Up to $1/sqft savings in your building’s electrical distribution costs
You have two options for putting plugs to work in your building:
  1. Do it yourself may work but has the following risks:
    • Can be very time consuming
    • You may struggle with knowing which appliances to focus on
    • It’s very challenging to identify smart plugs that meet your specs
    • You may not achieve your building performance goals
  2. Work with Keewi: get the results you need with your plugs with Keewi’s quick, easy, and proven solution
It’s hard to say no to a solution that
  • helps you reach new heights in your leadership,
  • gets rid of uncertainty in your building’s operations,

Solutions

With Keewi, you can monitor 110V or 220V appliances. Typical appliances to manage include:
  • Printers​
  • Vending machines
  • Golf carts
  • TVs
  • Computers / monitors
  • Space heaters
  • Coffee makers
  • Refrigerators
  • Water coolers
  • Power strips
You can easily install Keewi for power strips using either of the following strategies:
  • Monitor and manage each socket of the power strip separately by plugging in a Keewi adaptor for each socket. You get to individually collect data from each appliance and turn them on/off individually.
  • Monitor and manage the entire power strip with a single Keewi plug/adaptor. In this case, you turn on/off all appliances on the power strip together
  • Use Keewi’s intelligent power strips that have built-in monitoring and controls on every socket (coming soon)
We understand that every building is unique in its requirements, occupancy and use cases. With Keewi, you have the following form factors:
  • Single socket adaptors: 110V, 15A, Type A or Type B
  • Dual socket adaptors: 110V, 15A, Type A or Type B
  • Dual socket duplexes (in-wall): 110V, 20A, Type A or Type B
  • Intelligent power strips (coming soon): 110V, 15A, Type A or Type B
  • Heavy duty: 40A, in-line control and monitoring
We offer a catalogue of choices for the device wireless network, including Z-Wave, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth.
You have choices when it comes to the installation of the Keewi system:
  • Self-installation is easy and takes a few seconds per plug. Keewi will send you a comprehensive package that’s ready to install. All you have to do is insert the Keewi adaptors between the plug socket (on the wall or power strip) and the appliance you’d like to monitor. You then fill out an online form that lets us optimize your wireless network. You can start collecting data within minutes.
  • Installation by Keewi leaves the installation process in the hands of professionals who can accommodate your schedule and ensure minimal disruptions to the normal operations of your building. If you’re interested in the intelligent Keewi duplexes (in-wall), a certified electrician will install the outlets for you.
You a few different options depending on network and IT requirements in your building:
  • Wired ethernet connection: connect the Keewi hub to any live ethernet port on the wall or on your router to enable an outbound-only connection. You do not have to worry about changing any of your firewall settings.
  • Existing Wi-Fi network: with this option you connect the Keewi hub wirelessly to an existing WiFi network in your building. Clients often choose a separate Wi-Fi network specifically for building management systems to connect their Keewi system.
  • Cellular: At an additional cost, we use a cellular modem and our own Wi-Fi router to create a new WiFi network specifically for the Keewi system. There are no specific requirements on your internal network for this option and it's very easy to set up.
Our goal is to make your job as easy as possible. We offer cloud-to-cloud APIs that enable easy integration of data and controls between the Keewi intelligent plugs/outlets and any of your existing building systems. We’re always open to integrating the Keewi platform with other solutions and want to hear from you if you have a specific integration request.

We’re an experienced and motivated team with deep expertise in machine learning, advanced analytics, and software. We’re passionate about bringing the next generation of plugs into reality because we’re excited about having scalable positive impact in the world. We got our start in 2016 at Stanford University at the heart of Silicon Valley.
Keewi was founded with a vision of transforming buildings to preserve the pristine outdoors. Our founders, Jennifer and Hedi, were inspired by the beautiful Kiwi country of New Zealand, that they see as the epitome of these pristine outdoors. Our name is a play on the spelling of the word “Kiwi”.

About Us

Keewi’s vision is to transform everyday electrical plugs into powerful sensors. We apply advanced technologies such as machine learning (ML) and the Internet of Things (IoT) to plugs in order to bring comfort, convenience, safety, and efficiency for people and their buildings.

Keewi is powered by a founding team that met at Stanford University, and came together through a passion for using technology to create a sustainable future. Jennifer and Hedi founded Keewi to solve a big and growing problem that’s responsible for millions of dollars of wasted energy every year. They soon realized, however, that plugs can do so much more and have been passionately working with the whole Keewi team to bring their transformative vision into reality.

We get asked often what “Keewi” means and where our name has come from. Our founders, Jennifer and Hedi, have spent time in New Zealand and when they think of pristine outdoors, images of the beautiful Kiwi country come to mind. Our name is a play on the spelling of the word. If you’re curious to learn more about our team, make sure to follow us on Instagram .
